The Blair Robot Project

The Official Website of FRC Team 449



We are FIRST Team 449, better known as the Blair Robot Project. We build robots for the annual FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Competition (FRC). We completed the 2016 build season on February 23rd. This year’s robot, ROUS (Robot of Unusual Size inspired by The Princess Bride), has participated at Walt Whitman High School from March 12th – March 13th, Churchland High School from March 19th – March 20th, and University Maryland from April 5th-8th.
